Anything else we should know? As a local community member and parent, my passion is to help provide resources and bridge information gaps for all Maricopians about local higher education opportunities. I think that it is so great for the city of Maricopa to have a local Central Arizona College campus. A student can complete a full associate degree, a certificate, or just a few classes locally. A community member can take a self-interest class like cake decorating. We have a campus library that is open and available to all Maricopa community members. There are so many great things that I could say about Central Arizona College and how proud I am to work for this school. Please come see the campus sometime soon and if you would like a campus tour, just say the word. Central Arizona College Maricopa is located at 17945 N. Regent Dr. The campus is open Monday through Thursday, from 8am to 6pm. If you would like more information about the local Maricopa campus, please call 520-494-6400.
